I don't have Windows 8 on any machines however I have watched some tutorials and am aware that webbrowsers in metro mode do not(or did not) have flash enabled on them - so using a browser in panel mode as opposed to desktop mode may mean that a website does not work like before.
However this may have been fixed.

Can someone tell me why, when you tell users to do things like:
- open windows Explorer
- in the screen the appears, navigate to folder "x"
- Run Word, click on "Open" and navigate to your document.
and then they act like deer in headlights, they almost always say "well I'm not a techie/compter expert, etc..." in a sarcastic tone??
When the mechanic tells them to check their oil in their car, do they say "well I'm not a mechanic/car expert"?
Sheesh. Is it too much to expect someone who uses a computer/car/appliance on a regular basis, to actually know something about what they're using?

Thank you for your time. We now return you to your regularly scheduled hell.....
If we don't explain it well enough (and that includes speed of delivery) then it is our fault. If you bought a washing machine and couldn't work out how to set it to "spin only", but the sales droid went so fast you couldn't follow it whose fault would that be? And most software is orders of magnitude more complex than a washing machine...
We have a responsibility to users to ensure that we explain things in ways they understand.
